How to start
Do you like to face challenges? Do you want to learn more about yourself and develop your full potential? Participate in the Award and found out that with perseverance and determination you can do more than you think.
You can start your Award journey in any organisation, in which is waiting for you a trained mentor and other young people participating in the programme - the so-called Independent Award Centre.
With this mentor you will agree on activities that you want to do in four Sections and set in each of these goals, which will be a challenge for you. You choose also one of three levels of the program which differ by time demands.
If you are a student or member of any of Independent Award Centers and got 14 to 24 years, contact the coordinator in your organisation. And maybe you will experience the same adventure as students from the Cambridge International School Bratislava did. The map of participating organisations is just below the video.
The National Office of the Award in Slovakia, with the support of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation in London, is piloting the Award at 10 organisations in Bratislava from June 2015 to June 2016. The National Office has signed an Acredited Licence on the March 30th 2016 and from April we are working on growing the Award in other regions in Slovakia from September 2016.
